Sea Cliff / Renaissance Terrace
The Lightfoot Planning Group provided planning and landscape architectural services for this 96-unit condominium development consisting of two 65-foot high structures with a subterranean parking garage and associated recreational facilities. The project provides high density, high quality housing within the coastal zone and the downtown redevelopment area with excellent local access to transportation, employment, shopping and the beach. The recreational facilities include a pool and spa, barbecues, and “outdoor room” spaces defined with overhead trellises.
The project also incorporates habitat mitigation, including re-vegetation, enhancement and preservation components on open space within the project area and the adjacent State Lands. The project involved a State Lands Boundary settlement agreement, approved by the State Lands Commission. The project proposal was controversial with the neighboring mobile home park and was successfully upheld through litigation over the Environmental Impact Report and an appeal to the Coastal Commission.
